Autumn 1st Half Term

 

Over the course of this half term we have been focusing on our Geography topic of Rubbish and Recycling. The children have spent lots of time researching and creating projects about the key areas. 

  • What is meant by the word ‘environment’? What do we like/dislike about our environment (classroom, school, home, town, country, world etc)?
  • What, exactly, is meant by waste/rubbish? Where does all the rubbish go? How does it get there? What are these places like? How much waste/rubbish does your family produce?
  • What do the words reuse and recycle mean? How could more waste be reused or recycled? How could we reduce the amount of rubbish we produce in the first place?
  • What does the word environment mean? Why is it so important that we look after it? Why should we reduce the amount of rubbish produced? How could we persuade others to reduce the amount of waste they produce.

 

We now have a Topic library displaying out projects for everyone to read.

We also had 2 rubbish and recycling days. One was based in school were we did lots of skill based activities to learn about the process of recycling, landfill and what we can recycle. The other day was spent at The EcoCentre in Southport where we learnt about the importance of recycling and the benefits and importance of recycling for our planet.

2nd Half of the Autumn Term

Our focus for this term has been on the Anglo-Saxons. The children have really enjoyed reading and researching about how they arrived in the UK and what life was like during that time. We have found some amazing things out too....like that the Anglo-Saxons are responsible for a lot of the names of our towns and cities!! We have enjoyed the topic so much that we have been using it as a focus in literacy and we are in the process of writing our own Non-Chronological reports about the Anglo-Saxons. (See our literacy page to read them!)
